Hi everybody,

Possibly useful information. Is it already known?

When using calls to "caml_alloc" in a 64 bits architecture without
having included "caml/alloc.h", it raises "Segmentation fault" at
execution time.

Notice that I got no warning at compilation time for using caml_alloc
without a definition stub.

In 32 bits architecture, I never had any problem with that.

   Don't forget to #include "caml/alloc.h" in your C programs
   if you alloc OCaml things!
